To Ana and Roger, Don, and your children and grandchildren, my deepest sympathy for your loss. Aunt Eva was my personal “guardian angel” during my grade school years as a quiet, shy kid. She always watched out for me, my brother Michael, & sister Judy during our time at Our Lady of Peace school. She was so welcoming when we visited her house, and she always had a sweet smile to uplift us. What a beautiful, strong, loving person. She is surely rejoicing in heaven and her soul magnifies the Lord, just as it has touched my life on earth. May God comfort each of you. Please know that our arms are around you and our prayers are with you. We share in your sadness, but also in the happiness of Aunt Eva being welcomed into heaven. love, your cousin Dee Dee Monseur

The 21 gun salute was a wonderful tribute to your mother. She was smiling from heaven. I wish I could have stayed longer. I will pray for you and your family and look forward to seeing you when you are back in town. Roger, you said what needed to be said about Eva. Your words were beautiful. Mary Jo
